Gorgeous food, extraordinary menu, friendly and awesome service - I wouldn't know what else I could expect. Some people complain it is expensive, but you get what you pay for. We went for one Sala of Tokyo menu with Kobe beef and another menu for my wife and were both very happy and full!

I had the black cod menu and loved it even though the cod had some bones. The only downside is that the restaurant closes at 11Pm so for late dinner is a bit too early.

We were recommended the restaurant as being THE place for Japanese in Zurich. Service was good and everyone pleasant and friendly, however the food was rather disappointing. The quality of sashimi was very average, the rolls were very thick with rice and the black cod was full of bones and so sweet it was uneatable. If this is THE best... More

I was in this restaurant last night and I founded that the service was excellent but the amount of money they charged for the quality of the food was INSANE. I ordered a spicy tuna that just tasted like wasabi, a tempura that was okay i decided to trust the chef on the sashimi that was the selection of the... More

Superb food, lovely ambiance, authentic and very friendly (mostly Japanese) staff. Make sure to pre-order the kobe beef (for sukiyaki) and you're set for a unforgettable dinner. Enjoy!
